sparkly metallic watercolor paints and colored some embossed specialty paper. Well it turned out so pretty I didn't want to cover over it but I had to. So I fished around in my supplies and found a swirly thing-a-ma-bob and painted it with gold metallic paint and some more of the sparkly watercolor paints so it would sort of match the background. Then I had this big fat chipboard O which was very plain so I ran it through my Sizzix machine inside an embossing folder. Then more gold paint. Well you can't put that over a busy background so I put both onto a reddish purple rectangle of paper. The words were printed, cut out and inked. Phew! That one was a pain!
K is for Kick used a green gelli print background with a gypsy image over that and some punched circles from a red gelli print. I then used those same paints to paint the letter and corrugated paper. A scrap of the background was used for the words and written also with a pigma pen.
While antiquing in Pasadena recently I came across some beautiful vintage black lace that I had to have and so I used a piece of it for my L is for Lace tag. Gelli prints were used for the background and words. I added some black and white polka dot washi(?) tape behind the words a a teeny scrap of paper in the same print to use for the eyelet.
Man it's been ages since I posted but then I've been busy with posting for Altered Pages and taking mini vacations this month. So without further ado I will go on to the next letter in my alphabet tag series.
G is for Gelli printing was made with cutouts from different Gelli prints
including the chipboard letter. scalloped edging and the eyelet flower.
I used some specialty paper from the art supply store and painted it with a charcoal grey.
The owl image was cut into an oval with yellow paper behind and
cut with postage stamp decorative scissors. I designed the words in Publisher.
I is for Itsy Bitsy Inchies was inspired by my friend Rita who had just done a recent inchie art swap. Again, a Gelli print was used for the main background as well as the inchies.
